Rob Whitehouse began his producing career in style with The Scarecrow, the first Kiwi feature to win official invitation to the Cannes Film Festival. In tandem with late producing partner Lloyd Phillips, he brought Hollywood down under for Battletruck and big budget adventure Savage Islands, and made miniseries Heart of the High Country. Since then he has produced and financed films in the US, UK and beyond.
I've been really lucky to be involved in some wonderful films, working with talented people around the world. All that started with those exciting days of the late 70s and early 80s in New Zealand. Rob Whitehouse
